Practice Philosophy

"I listen closely to each of my patients with the goal of understanding them as individuals and partnering with them to get to the correct diagnosis if they have a rheumatic disease – or provide reassurance with confidence if they don’t. I believe that patients know their bodies and health goals best. I always strive to educate my patients about the disease and provide them with the information to understand and compare possible treatment options so that together we can make good decisions to maximize the chances of achieving their optimal health goals."
